Today sees the US release of Anathema‘s ninth studio album, Weather Systems via The End Records. The album was recorded in Liverpool, North Wales and Oslo, each place significant to Anathema past, present and future. The record was produced by band members Vincent Cavanagh and Daniel Cavanagh, as well as Christer-André Cederberg.
Weather Systems is the follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed We’re Here Because We’re Here, which producer Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), has described as ”definitely among the best albums I’ve ever had the pleasure to work on. Daniel Cavanagh (lead guitarist) is certain that the album will exceed the lofty expectations, stating, “it feels like we are at a creative peak right now, and this album reflects that. Everything from the production to the writing to the performances are a step up from our last album.”
